I am approaching 4,000 km on the chain and it is still at 0.25% wear; that is 1,000 km more than norma! If it keeps on at this rate I expect more than 8,000 km on the chain!
I am doing about 8-10,000 km per year on the FELT, so this to me is the difference between 1 chain and 3.
I pushed the latest re-wax to 400km, this was by accident not design, but the chain was still relatively silent and gear changes smooth; normally about 300 km is the re-wax limit suggested.
Along with the other 5 bikes I am waxing, this makes 20 uses of the wax. The wax still looks ok and is plentiful. It is still working fine and not contaminated with muck, so I am expecting this to last a bit longer. the longer it lasts the cheaper each wax event becomes. That is currently 65 cents per use. I am expecting 30 uses which will make each use about 45 cents.
till next report.
